A widely used term in astrology is planetary transits. Which are nothing more than the movement of the planets in relation to the birth chart.
The birth chart contains the planets at the time of your birth, but they have continued to move and comparing their current position on your birth chart we have the transits.
Each planet has a duration when it goes completely around all the signs of the zodiac. The closer the planet is to the Sun, its movement will be faster.
A very simple way to learn to use and understand transits is to follow the movement of the Sun on the zodiac wheel. The Sun lasts approximately thirty days in each sign, and when he transits each of them, he activates and illuminates the qualities of said sign.
The twelve signs of the zodiac are distributed in the birth chart, so each of us has them somewhere. During 2020, I invite you to use astrology as a tool to navigate current events, and the Sun can help you focus planetary energy each month on your birth chart.
The solar transit technique is very simple, it consists in following the movement of the Sun through the signs of the zodiac. For example, from March 19 to April 18, the Sun will be in Aries. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, among its qualities is being pioneering, competitive, impulsive and having courage. It also symbolizes independence, speed, living in the present moment and the beginning of something. The energy of Aries depending on how you navigate, can activate violence, intolerance, arrogance and lack of follow-up, among other things.
In these times of change, confusion and adaptation, the Sun in Aries in the house you are traveling through can give you clues where to find the impulse, the desire to start something and to motivate you to be active. Regardless of the house system you use, look on your birth chart in which astrological house(s) you have this sign.
The Sun transiting through the sign of Aries, is where you will have activities to do and the motivation to be on the move. It is interesting that you identify in which astrological house this movement is taking place, because it is the preparation for the following month. For example, if you have Aries in house 1, it is time to change the way you dress or how others perceive you, by making these changes when the Sun goes to house 2, which symbolizes your finances (how you earn and spend) the money). So, there may be an entrance or some expense for what you started during the transit of the Sun in Aries in house 1.
This explanation is quite general, so it is my invitation to observe how you have experienced the energy of the Sun in Aries and the correlation of this in your area of life or astrological house.
It is important that you consider, if you have planets in the sign of Aries, since they will also be illuminated by the Sun, that is, the energy of Aries will be highlighted in what each of them represents.
This simple technique of following the Sun through the signs of the zodiac and in which astrological house it was was used in ancient times and marked activities such as agriculture, rituals, society and even the decisions of the rulers.
